Trump to sell US$21 billion arms to Qatar

(by AFP/Getty)

 

US defense secretary Gen. James (Mad Dog) Mattis and Qatari defense minister Khalid bin Mohammad Al-Attiya inked a US$12 billion arms deal in Washington.

 

“We are pleased to announce today the signing of the letter of offer and acceptance for the purchase of the F-15QA fighter jets, with an initial cost of $12 billion dollars.

 

We believe that this agreement will propel Qatar’s ability to provide for its own security while also reducing the burden placed upon the United States military in conducting operations against violent extremism,” read the Qatari defense minister’s statement.

Mattis also agreed to sell another US$9 billion worth arms to Qatar.

 

 

 

This arms deal came only a week after Washington blamed Qatari ‘royal’ of supporting terrorism by Hamas, Iran and Hizbullah against the Zionist entity and US allies in the region.

 

 

Last year when Barack Obama signed the bill to give Israel US$38 billion worth military aid during the next ten years – I wrote that the gift was to start a arms race in the Middle East which would eventually boost the US, Britain and French arms sales. The recent US$110 billion arms deal between Donald Trump and Saudi King Salman has proved my analysis. Furthermore, Kuwait, Bahrain and UAE have also ordered billions of dollars worth arms from the US, Britain and France.

 

 

The great majority of US lawmakers are hypocrites who have sold their souls to Jewish money. For example, Republican Sen. Rand Paul and Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy are trying to block Trump-Salman US$110 billion arms deal which Trump has touted as a major achievement of his first foreign trip last month. However both ‘moral Christians’ supported Barack Obama’s US$38 billion arms charity to the baby killing Jewish army last year. Thanks to supporters of Saudi-Israel alliance against Iran and Syria, the anti-Saudi motion was defeated on June 12, 2017.

 

 

Paul has cited Saudi Arabia’s dismal human rights record and aggressive war on Yemen as reasons to oppose the arms deal. What about Israel’s dismal human rights records and its non-stop aggression on Gaza and Arab neighbors?

Last month, 10 US lawmakers who received more than US$1 million from the Israel lobbying groups, tabled the so-called Palestinian terror bill linking Qatar with Gaza ruling Islamic Resistance Hamas.

 

Trita Parsi, PhD, a non-Muslim US citizens of Iranian descent and founder of NIAC says that the similarities between the US-allied Arab nations’ terror list and HR 2712 show growing cooperation between Gulf Arab states and the Zionist entity.

“They’re not traditional pro-Saudi legislators. They’re in the pro-Likud camp (Netanyahu’s ruling party),” said Parsi.

 

 

On June 5, 2017, the Times of Israel reported that Israeli defense minister Avigdor Liberman was overjoyed over Saudi-Qatar crisis.
